  • Mini Week Explores Nine Themes with Hands-On Learning Over Two Days

    For several days in October each year, Calvert Middle Schoolers exchange academic subjects for hands-on experiences that range from outdoor adventures to artistic pursuits and off-campus field trips. It’s called Mini Week, and this year’s program – Wednesday, October 25, to Friday, October 27 – departed from previous years’ patterns to highlight nine specific themes. Divided between these subjects, the students participated in two full days of enrichment related to their cohort’s theme: performing arts, visual arts, culinary arts, STEM, environment, animals, fall harvest, government, or wellness.
    In addition, all students enjoyed a grade-level field trip to Bretton Woods (Fifth Grade), Camp Puh’tok (Sixth Grade), or Gettysburg (Seventh Grade and Eighth Grade).
    We hope you will join us in thanking organizers Angel Menefee and Becky Kinney, as well as all chaperones and group leaders, for making Mini Week possible.

  • Seventh Grade Ventures to Eastern Shore for Purpose Summit

    Last week, the Class of 2024 headed to the Eastern Shore in Maryland for an overnight student leadership retreat and summit. At the summit, Calvert’s Seventh Graders connected with their peers in a beautiful outdoor education setting outside Baltimore and learned more about the concepts of leadership and purpose.

    In advisory groups, students participated in a series of workshops, middle school leadership activities, and bonding experiences including outdoor education, a zipline, a climbing wall, and a ropes course. They reflected on their Calvert journey and talked about middle school leadership, specifically how they have been leaders at Calvert through community partnerships and the gifts they bring to the larger community. Throughout the two days, the Seventh Graders had the opportunity to connect with each other and to learn more about their teachers. 

    Mr. Bennett and Ms. Dennison both took the time to share personal reflections with the whole group about their lives not only as teachers and coaches, but also as individuals in the world. Ms. Liotta was also an important presence, helping remind students that the work they were doing at this summit would lay a strong foundation for next year’s high school placement process. 

    These conversations were a great starting point for their Eighth Grade year, which includes a thorough journey of self-discovery when they will delve deeper into topics of leadership and purpose while considering where to continue their educational journeys.

    In the end, students crafted purpose statements that reflect their individual strengths and the impact they want to have on the world around them. They designed puzzle pieces with their individual statements, which they shared with their classmates at the end of the summit. These puzzle pieces are a visual representation of how each member of the Class of 2024 plays an important role in making the group whole.

  • Reflections from John Wolfe '42

    I was in the graduating class of 1942, a war year, a long time ago.

    The sharp recollection is of “5-A,” the 11th Age/Fifth Grade, with Edward G. Huey as teacher - an absolutely remarkable person. He had even written a Fifth Grade science book the year before called What Makes the Wheels Go ‘Round, and it was fascinating.

    But, in that school year, he took the entire boys’ class on a steam train field trip, all the way to Philadelphia, to spend a day at the Franklin Institute.
